Scary sounds

September 14th, 2004

Eric Meyer posted an entry on his blog where he talks about things that go beep in the night. More specificly, something in his house that apparantly gave three beeps in the middle of the night.

Scary... *shudders*

Reminds me of the fire detector we had when I was little... I wasn’t aware we had such a thing, and at some points the batteries needed replacement and the thing started to beep, in the middle of the night, right above my bedroom door... Beep... (long silence)... Beep...

I have never been so scared in my life.

Well ok, maybe that’s not true, but fact is that it scared the hell out of me and once I found out what it was, I hated the thing and wanted it gone before would start to beep in the middle of the night again :). Alas, no go. Obviously mom and pop thought it rediculous. ^_^

Another thing, what about receiving a phonecall in the middle of the night occasionally, only on the telephone in my room (seperate number) which only gives a beep, and nothing else? My theory is that it is some fax or modem doing a routine job (though I don’t see much routine in it), and that my telephone number snuck in their dial list accidentally? Who knows. I should get myself a number recognizer display sometime.

About the three beeps, Eric actually offers a cute theory that in the middle of the night his devices and gatgets come to life and start to talk to eachother. :) Well, that would be something.
